St. Paul’s Church was formed by an official act of the City Council of Key West. In a petition to the bishop of New York, the City council requested a priest be sent and the Parish of St. Paul’s be established.

In 1831, the council gave notice of a public meeting to establish an Episcopal Church and a committee was appointed.

HISTORY

St. Paul’s Church was formed by an official act of the City Council of Key West. In a petition to the bishop of New York, the City council requested a priest be sent and the Parish of St. Paul’s be established.  The first rector was the Reverend Sanson K. Brunot, who arrived December 23, 1832. The first of four churches on this site was completed in 1839.  Our rectory, built in 1857 is still standing but in need of repair. Learn more about the Historic Rectory and the proposed renovation.
